The First Taste of DEVIN TOWNSEND's Retinal Circus
Last year The Devin Townsend Project performed a special one time set that included music from (almost) every Devin Townsend solo album called The Retinal Circus. After months and months of fine tuning and what Dev has called "Turd polish," The event is finally going to be available to the public. Here is the first taste of the show with "Grace" live with a choir, circus performers and the lovely Anneke Van Giersbergen.
Here is the full press-release which curiously lacks a release date.
Devin Townsend Project reveal first glimpse of forthcoming Retinal Circus release
It’s been a long wait, but finally Devin Townsend Project is pleased to reveal the first taste of the forthcoming Retinal Circus release, with the release date to be announced very soon. For your viewing and listening pleasure, here is a clip of the epic ‘Grace’ being performed, with the band joined by frequent collaborator Anneke Van Giersbergen:http://youtu.be/E1Gwtep2oXw
Devin Townsend had this to say about the huge undertaking that is The Retinal Circus release: ‘So closing in on 8 months of work, we're almost finished with the Retinal Circus! It's been a huge amount of work for everyone, from the show, down to DVD & Blu-ray authoring, artwork, logistics…(not to mention the show itself!) but we're almost there, and when watched in its entirety, it's really a heck of an experience!
To tie you over until it’s out, here's a clip of the song 'Grace'…It's out of context obviously, but hopefully gives you a vague idea of what's about to come out.
It's been a ton of work for everybody and we're really quite proud of it…when the final products have been produced, we'll let you know!
Retinal Circus will be released on several formats, including a lavish and bonkers limited edition befitting of the man himself, and which took months of hard work to put together. The complete list of formats is below:
Standard 2-Disc DVD
Standard 1-Disc Blu-Ray
